A bit of history:

Tea is a millennial beverage whose origins date back to ancient China, more than 4,000 years ago. Legend attributes its discovery to Emperor Shen Nong who, in 2737 BC, allegedly discovered the infused tea leaves by accident. Since then, tea has spread all over the world, becoming a popular drink and a central element of many cultures and traditions.

The different types of teas:

There are mainly six types of teas, all derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, but which vary depending on the treatment and fermentation of the leaves:

  • a) Green tea: non-fermented, rich in antioxidants.
  • b) Black tea: fully fermented, with a more robust flavor.
  • c) White tea: non-fermented, lightly treated and with a delicate flavor.
  • d) Oolong tea: partially fermented, situated between green tea and black tea.
  • e) Yellow tea: lightly fermented, rare and precious.
  • f) Dark tea: fermented and aged, offering a unique and deep flavor.
